Today I went to Berchtesgaden, Germany. This is a very small town near the German-Austrian border where Kehlsteinhaus (The Eagle’s Nest) is located. The Eagle’s Nest was a 50th birthday present to Adolf Hitler from the Third Reich. It is a house on the top of a mountain, reachable by a gold-plated elevator. Ironic, because Hitler was afraid of heights.
This was liberated by the famous 101st Airborne Division during the final days of WWII.
After enjoying my time in Berchtesgaden, I boarded a train and headed back to Austria. I arrived in Vienna at about 10pm. Tomorrow is a full day here before continuing on to Prague.
